Freshwater Center & North, Argentina: Pirá Lodge

January 2018

Fishing conditions have been optimal, and with water levels continuing to drop, finding fish concentrated in the main channels. There were a few thunderstorms at the beginning of the month, but they didn’t bring enough rain to significantly change the shape of the Marsh or the river. Water clarity was excellent. In fact, in some channels it’s like peering into a natural aquarium—full of catfish, sabalo, and other small baitfish.
Both the Marsh and the Corriente River were holding good numbers of dorado. Hilton Channel, in the Marsh, recently produced the largest fish of the season to date, a stacked 18-pounder.
New channels were cleared up for anglers to explore in the Marsh. Now that they’re open, they’re loaded with resident dorado, fish that have likely never seen streamers pulled across their noses.
In the lower river system, the fishing has been productive from the confluence downstream to Beat No. 3. Below that, they’re starting to lose some water clarity.
